How to watch Apple's WWDC 2015 live stream on any device
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 08, 2015, 4:46 AM
The requirements are to have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 6 with Safari or later, Mac with OS X v10.8.5 or later, while streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.
How about if you don't own an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV puck or a Mac, though? Well, besides some live streaming sites offering the usual we-pretend-to-comment-while-an-Apple-event-streams-behind-us sessions, you will eventually be able to watch it on your Windows or Linux computer, too, as long as you have the VLC media player installed. Here are the various ways to stream the WWDC event live and in its full glory, without annoying interruptions.
1. Go to http://www.apple.com/live with your Apple TV, Mac or iOS device, and stream the WWDC show directly;
2. Download the WWDC app from the App Store, and install on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. You will find not only the current live stream there, but also previous live Apple shows, the events schedule, and so on;
3. Download the VLC media player for Windows or Linux, go to the Media menu on the top left corner, and choose the "Open Network Stream" option, pasting the following URL in the box:
The link above wouldn't be functional until after the event commences, as usual, so don't go about frantically clicking and pasting before the official times of the WWDC event start, which are as follows:
Apple WWDC 2015: 10am PT | 12pm CT | 1pm ET | 6pm GMT | 7pm CET | 8pm EET | 1am 6/9 Beijing

PA: "We forgot to mention that you need at least 2GB of RAM on your device to make this work...Ah whoops,maybe when the iCHUMP9+ is released, you'll be good to go! "

Apple better not disappoint this time, Android has become as much polished and smooth as iOS always wanted to be, so either iOS9 will bring stability and more advanced files management or S6/M9, here I come!

Why don't I feel any excitement? Because iOS 9 will be the same looking as iOS 8 plus additional features from Android. BTW, did anyone notice PA changed its notification style? I wish PA brings back red thumb because some comments look retard recently.

I just hope they bring Numbers/Pages in the iCloud out of beta, Remove bunch of stuff from iOS - give me a barebone iOS and let me add everything on. HomeKit. I'm also curious about separate iOS9 version for older devices. Oh and open Touch ID to third party apps like signing in to Bank apps. Would be nice to allow access to iCloud dedicated software on PC - without the need for browser. Increase Cloud storage - I dont want to use Google's or 3rd Party. Among other things maybe offline Siri functions (internet is patchy sometimes - and I rely heavy on Siri) Bring iMessage and Facetime to all platforms... But maybe it's just me..

Hopefully it will not be a failure like the last Google Keynote.
